I know these last two posts are kind of in reverse order and that most of you already know this but...
I WENT to El Salvador!!!
It was a beautiful experience, very good for my Spanish. I saw beautiful places and was taken good care of be wonderful people.
El Salvador seems to be pretty temperate with their whether. They have two seasons, not rainy and rainy. We were in the rainy season but it only rain once or twice during the week and was nice during almost every day. They don't really use air conditioners there from what I could see.
So in most Latino America there are usually two wedding ceremonies, one before the law which is called the civil wedding, and one before God and the church which is the religious wedding.
And the soda!
And the bread!
She and here bridesmaids and flower girls were ready to go quite some time before the groom was ready actually.
Once we got our clothes though Julio quickly got dressed and was ready to go, unfazed and ready to meet his bride.
Basically the was group pictures worked was whoever wanted a picture with the bride and groom jumped in when they saw a chance. So I jumped in for one as well! lol
We in the US could definitely learn some lessons in hospitality and in putting others above our self from the latino culture and especially from this couple here. I was humbled by how willing they were to sacrifice their own comfort and convenience in order to take care of me and their other guests. And that hospitality that they showed was also extend by their family and friends in their willingness to gives rides and provide places in their homes to sleep to take us with them around El Salvador as part of their families. This is one part of the latino culture I don't want to miss and that I want to learn for myself.
